Published on .

Dallas—The exhibition industry experienced an overall decline of 10.9% in the second quarter of 2009 compared with the same period last year, according to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research's annual CEIR Index.

CEIR blamed the decline on the continuing recession. The second quarter results did, however, mark a 0.7% increase in performance compared with this year's first quarter.

The CEIR Index measures attendance, net square feet, revenue and number of exhibiting companies at events.
